Noida Sector 100 Fire: AC Blast Ignites Massive Blaze, Raising Safety Concerns

Noida Sector 100 fire: A massive blaze erupted in an apartment complex in Uttar Pradesh’s Lotus Boulevard Society due to an air conditioner explosion, enveloping the high-rise buildings in thick black smoke.

The incident happened on Thursday morning when an AC unit inside the building exploded, igniting the fire. Five fire tenders swiftly responded to the scene. Fortunately, no injuries or casualties have been reported so far.

Witnesses said that people living in nearby apartments evacuated their flats as soon as they witnessed the smoke and gathered in the common area of the society as a precautionary measure.

An incident on the 10th floor of the building was reported to the fire service unit by locals and residents at 10.10 am, according to Chief Fire Officer Pradeep Kumar Choubey. He said that five vehicles (water tenders) were rushed to the scene. Nevertheless, the firefighting systems installed in the society managed to put out the flames before the vehicles reached there.

It was triggered by a blast in the air conditioner (AC). Choubey said the fire was contained in one room (of the flat) because the firefighting systems, such as sprinklers, extinguishers, and hoses, were working well. The incident did not result in the loss of life or injury of any person.

The cause of the fire was determined to be a technical malfunction in the AC unit, which led to a small explosion and subsequent flames. The resident of the flat quickly alerted the authorities and followed proper evacuation procedures, allowing for quick containment of the fire.

Preventive Measures:

For residential complexes to prevent such incidents in the future, proactive measures must be taken. The following preventive measures are recommended by Basic Elements, a leading provider of fire safety solutions:

  • Maintain and inspect all electrical appliances, including air conditioners, regularly to detect and address any potential problems.
  • To prevent electrical overloads and short circuits that can result in fires, surge protectors and circuit breakers should be installed.
  • In order to prevent overheating and potential fire hazards, ensure adequate ventilation and clearance around air conditioning units.
  • Regularly conducting fire safety awareness and evacuation drills to ensure that residents are aware of emergency procedures and that a quick response is possible in the event of a fire.
  • To minimize the risk of accidental fires, strict guidelines should be implemented for the storage and use of flammable materials in residential units.”
